Testimonials

“Nehaal only met with my daughter for two hours, to help prepare her for Sixth Form entrance exams. But those two hours were impressive. Nehaal came well-prepared with various types of material based on information I had given her. More important, I believe she taught my daughter more about how to structure an essay than my daughter had learned in over four years of secondary school. “My daughter has been called back for interviews at both schools she applied to, and in at least one case has been shortlisted for an academic scholarship (as of this writing both interviews are still in the future). Of course we cannot say this wouldn’t have happened without Nehaal’s help, but even if it would, I regard those two hours as time very well spent.” Mrs B-G, London.
